The MP3 speaker jacket
No headphones here
The New Year brings about resolutions to get fit and lose weight. So, if you’re still struggling to get up of the sofa, a jacket with built-in MP3 capabilities could be the motivation you need.
MP3 Smart Jacket: like jogging with a ghetto blaster
Although jackets integrating MP3 players are nothing new, this is the first we’ve seen that makes wearers look like they’ve just washed up from a shipwreck. It also has built-in shoulder speakers, which should mean you don’t have to continually readjust your speakers while, say, jogging.
Your MP3 player is zipped into a secure pouch, should you trip over an errant shoelace and there’s also a spare pouch for your mobile, pedometer, or bag or crisps. It has volume and track adjustment buttons on the arm and is available in a selection of colours, including ‘night safe’ bright orange.
The jacket is available online, but no price has been given yet.
